16 and 13 year old dating
Rather than make a big deal to seperate them I would just make sure (as any responsible parent should) that she was educated and aware of the "birdsnbees".
But obviously there are seventeen year-old boys who think they're porn stars and all so... i want to answer your question with another question.
Why is a 17 year old wanting to date a 14 year old?
When I was seventeen, I was dating a fourteen year-old girl for a while; and it was perfectly innocent and nice and all, and her parents approved.
But given who I was back then, it really never would've even occurred to me to try to get in her pants.
In other words, All knowing God will bless you with your wife when your ready to be her husband. It's great that her parents would not mind if you dated her. A twenty-two year old man is considered an adult, but a sixteen year old is not yet an adult.
You may want to wait until she is atleast eighteen.
The Bible doesnt give instuctions for "Godly dating".
But it does tell us that God will never give us anything we cant handle and I think that includes things we arent ready for.
The younger the victim is, the more severe the punishment.
Note that this mans if you are 13 years or younger, you cannot legally consent, regardless of whether the other person is the same age or not.
When teenagers become sexually active, it brings to their lives a whole host of new complications and confusions.
